Thank you.

Another option may be Paul Neumeister, he has a variety of Boler and Trillium parts but not sure if he has the exact ones you are looking for.

Sorry, that's absolutely the wrong way to install a window, Joe. It's done with a clothesline rope in the outer channel. Can you imagine them installing it this way at the factory?

Er, no. Why it lives on I don't know.

There's always two ways to do anything. I've put two windshields in two different 53 Ford pickups. The first one went in smoothly using a nylon cord. The second one took gallons of liquid soap, nylon cord, butter knives (and a bunch of swear words!).

Please, would you be so kind as to let me know where you picked up a new window gasket and lockstrip? Also where do the tinted windows come from? One more question: are parts Scamp or Boler? I have a Scamp 5th wheel and a Boler also. Bout need window work. :-(

I thought the same thing. You best get them in with a softer smooth cloth line. Here is how it is done:

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

Did this for a few cars. Another trick is to knot the ends of the line together and put a wood bar in the created loop, spin the bar to tighten the line and make sure the seal flips towards the inside when doing this. That helps to bring the seal in place when pressing the window on. Unwind and start puling.
